The Shifting Context exhibition was curated through an open call for young artists by Aġenzija Żgħażagħ. The exhibition seeks to explore the critical role of art in responding to a rapidly changing world, encouraging young artists to appropriate the theme of Relocation in their work, taking it elsewhere into new and unexpected territories. Creativity entails looking at familiar things from a completely novel perspective and Shifting Contexts will encourage and sustain this approach. Shifting Contexts will promote a shared vision of the future of young people in accordance with the National Youth Policy – Towards 2020. This will contribute to a drive of cultural, social and economic regeneration as envisaged in the mission statement of Valletta 2018, and leading to the building of vital and dynamic communities of the future collectively.
